The Best Post In the World (a tribute)

This is not, the best post in the world... this is just a tribute (to Danny).

"Don't you think I was made for you? I feel like you had me ordered -- and I was delivered to you -- to be worn -- I want you to wear me, like a watch--charm or a button hole bouquet--to the world. "
-Zelda Sayre to F. Scott Fitzgerald. Spring 1919

As far as wordsmiths are concerned, I can't compete with "Mr. F" ... but in this case, I don't think it's a matter of me being made for you. But I think you were made for me. Because the truth is, Cher Danny, you could've made a million women in the universe happy, but you were the ONLY one for me.

Who else could put up with my 'stuff?'

Thank you for being my companion, my best friend, an active and engaged father, a role model, a yoga partner (even begrudgingly), a provider and my one true love. I hope your day is epic.

Happy Birthday Modest Mouse.

Food Diary
I did not do very well documenting, so I probably missed a few bites of something here or there, but Holden mostly ate oranges and avocados today and we are out of snack I'm mostly eating a bite here or there while I prepare our food.

Breakfast - Made Bob's Red Mill oatmeal and it was not good at all (poured the milk in so the milk was warm and the oats were totally uncooked. It was like warm granola with no sugar or flavoring - ew. So I snagged some of Holden's clementines, started on a glass of milk, didn't finish and settled for an apple and some cheese slices.

Lunch- Ginormous salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing: lettuce, spinach, red peppers, tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms (and get this - no cheese!)

Dinner Danny's birthday dinner at Settebello. So worth the extra calories!!!!
I got (and devoured) the Margherita Pizza with Crushed Tomatoes, Mozzarella, Basil, Parmigiano Reggiano and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. We also shared a salad with Mixed Greens, Balsamic Vinaigrette, Artichoke Hearts, Fresh Tomatoes, Roasted Mushrooms, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Kalamata Olives and Pine Nuts. We finished off with a shared serving of coconut gellato.

Happy Birthday Danny. You have one darling little wife and serious mama. She takes her role to a new level and lucky Holden will be the healthiest and most eco-friendly kid on earth. She is wonderful! Cute baby Holden ain't bad either.
